For the 2013 season, we will be integrating an accelerated format
for D3 and D4 match games. Normally, only two teams play at once with a 2 minute beak after each point scored. To reduce the down time in-between points when nothing is going on, there will be another match going on simultaneously. How this is going to work: so let’s say we have Team A and Team B playing their first point, meanwhile, Team C and Team D are in their pits getting prepared. When Team A scores a point against Team B, Team C and Team D will now have 30 seconds to get to their start stations before game time starts. While Team C and Team D play, Team A and Team B will be getting ready in their pits to play their next point. A benefit is your team can potentially have longer than 2 minutes to get ready. In the rare occasion that a point gets over in 20 seconds, the two teams waiting to play their next point will receive a minute to get ready, plus an additional 30 seconds to make it to their start stations, so your team will still have plenty of time in-between points to be prepared to play another point.
Novice Division (D3)
Raceto-4 is played in a match game format. Teams will have 12 minutes of game time to score up to 4 points against each other. The winning team is decided by whichever team scores 4 points first or which team has the most points at the end of game time.
